Recent figures have shown that as compared to previous years, last year workers fell less sick and thus took less sick leaves. Over all, six sick leaves were taken by the average worker in 2011. In South-east region the average worker took an off of 5.3 days. However, in Wales, sick leave of 6.5 days was taken by an average worker, last year.
The figures have been revealed by XpertHR. It has been revealed that the workers of public sector took greater number of sick leaves as compared to the workers of private firms. Rachel Suff, minutely studied the figures and said, "Figures show a slow but sure year-on-year decline in absence levels over the past five years".
The figures clearly show that the health of workers is improving. The figures were revealed after conducting a survey in 120 organizations. It was found that the time lost in the absence of workers has fallen to 3%.
The figures also show that the employers are taken adequate measures to ensure the safety of the workers. However, the employers of Wales need to take more effective steps so that the sound health of the workers could be ensured.
